Reviewed 11 June 2012

We had the pleasure of staying at the Pinewood Inn this past weekend while in Barry's Bay for a memorial. It had been a few years since we had stayed there and we weren't quite sure what to expect. The improvements that have been made by Yvette and Mark certainly impressed us! The room was spacious and exceptionally clean. The beds were comfy and new and the bathroom was redone. I was suprised to see all the amenities of a branded hotel including in room coffee, hair dryer , wireless high speed internet, and iron and ironing board. Over and above the usual, they also provided a fridge and microwave, make up remover wipes, in room brochure rack and extra blankets and pillows. There was also a nice seating area out back for relaxing and close proximity to the beach. Great stay. We will stay again!

What a fabulous family owned motel/inn. Very clean rooms, super comfy beds and also pet friendly. In the summer walk to the beach, in winter close to skiing and snowmobile trails. Our hosts, Yvette and Mark are lovely and very friendly. The room is well equipped with a fridge, microwave, coffee maker. We are on a long stay here as we wait for our new home and we are totaly comfortable. Our dogs love the huge back yard to run in. Thanks Mark and Yvette for your hospitality!!

Thank you Pat!! We are very grateful for your kind review. It is important to us that our guests are comfortable and satisfied. I will point out for those potential guests that do not have pets, we also have rooms that are not pet friendly. We are hopeful that we can provide accomodation that will suit everyone's needs.

I stayed here on the Family Day long weekend and was more then impressed with the quality of the rooms and the friendliness of the owners. The rooms were very spacious and well kept as well as having a fridge, microwave, coffee, television, a small eating table and a desk. My snowmobiling weekend (which this hotel is very conveniently located from the main trails as well as walking distance to the town) did not go as planned but Yvette and her husband Mark were more then happy to help us in any way that they could. The friendliness of the owners made an unfortunate mishap into a great trip. Five stars all around, good job guys!

Room Tip: Room with a Double and Queen bed as well as the pull out couch were very spacious.

A decent room with poor lighting from one small table lamp.

Although it took four hours for the room to become warm, the single room was warmer than the standard room at Ash Grove Inn in winter.

They should have a spare light bulb in a dresser drawer, as well as an extra lamp.

They should turn the heat on in at least one room in the afternoon in anticipation of at least one room being rented for the night instead of keeping the heat turned off for all rooms as if they are not anticipating any guests.

The bathroom fan did not work. That meant moisture would accumulate on the walls, which is a common cause of room odor. The room did have a bit of an odor, which is likely a result of moisture on the walls because the bathroom fan did not work.

We are very grateful for helpful advice re:our rooms. We would like to respond to this review. In our rooms we have anwhere from 2-3 lamps. Unfortunately I do not know which room this guest was in so I cannot be more specific. In terms of the fans, yes, unfortunately they are all vented into the attic. So, we disconnected them in every room to prevent any problems. It is one of our priorities to correct this in the near future (all have to be properly vented). For energy conservation (electric heat) all pre-booked rooms are heated prior to guests arrival. Thank you

Stayed here for 4 days. Yvette was a great hostess. Beds lovely, rooms clean and grounds nicely kept. Close to everywhere we wanted to go. Lake was lovely and watching a sunset and listening to the loon was a great way to end each day! Having coffee in room and a fridge available are great little things that make a stay nicer. You can see the hard work they have put into this place and know that they welcome you sincerely. Thanks for the nice stay.

I only spent 2 days here and I must say I was impressed. The grounds were clean as were the rooms. The rooms had cable and A/C and friendly service. I'll go back for sure!

My wife and I stayed at the Pinewood Inn during a holiday weekend while visiting Barry's Bay for a wedding. The host was extremely accommodating to us and could not have been nicer during our stay. There is a trail directly behind the hotel on the lake with access to a tennis court that is great for taking a stroll and enjoying the area. Our room was very comfortable with a mini-fridge, microwave and wired Internet access. We had a great time and would not hesitate to return.
